Once Again ZERO Deaths from Colloidal Silver and Other Supplements
The mainstream news media is awash with shrill warnings against colloidal silver usage, and against the use of nutritional supplements in general.
What’s more, the FDA routinely assures the public that supplements are “risky” and “potentially dangerous,” and require “tougher regulations.”
And if you believe what you read or hear from the FDA or the mainstream news media, you’ll come away thinking that colloidal silver is one of the most horrifically pernicious nutritional supplements on the face of the earth, and that all nutritional supplements are rife with inherent underlying dangers that require them to be regulated like drugs for the safety of the American public.
Of course, it’s utter nonsense…balderdash…and hogwash. What’s more, it’s irresponsible hype specifically designed to scare the bejabbers out of the general populace. Unfortunately, in today’s world fear is what sells, and reality doesn’t.
So what’s the reality about colloidal silver and other nutritional supplements? Once again, as is the case year-after-year, the death rate for colloidal silver is a great big ZERO. Indeed, the death rate for all nutritional supplements is a great big ZERO.
Here’s the straight scoop you’ll never hear on the evening news…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
The safety of colloidal silver and other nutritional supplements has once again been confirmed by America’s largest database for documenting incidences of harm caused by common substances.
Known as the National Poison Data System (NPDS), it’s the official “data warehouse” for poison control centers nationwide, keeping track of over 427,000 products ranging from household products such as laundry detergents, cleaning products and bug poison to over-the-counter medications and pain-killing drugs, and yes, even nutritional supplements.
At the end of each year, the NPDS publishes its findings for the previous year in their annual report known as the Annual Report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers’ National Poison Data System. This in turn is published every January in the journal Clinical Toxicity.
So the report for end-of-year 2016 covers data from 2015. Next year’s report will cover data from 2016. So what does the latest report show? Let’s take a look…
The Evidence Speaks for Itself
In this year’s report, the nation’s 55 main regional poison control centers logged in 2,792,130 reported cases of human exposure to various substances, including 2,168,371 human exposures, 55,516 animal exposures.
The top 5 substance classes most frequently involved in all reported human exposures were analgesic pain-killers (11.1%), household cleaning substances (7.54%), cosmetics and personal care products (7.41%), sedatives/hypnotics/antipsychotics (5.83%), and antidepressant drugs (4.58%).
This year, like every single year, there were ZERO deaths reported from colloidal silver. This, in spite of the fact that there are an estimated 10 million active colloidal silver users throughout North America, taking hundreds of millions of doses of colloidal silver every year.
What about other nutritional supplements?
I’ll let Andrew W. Saul, editor of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service do the honors. He writes:
“There were no deaths whatsoever from vitamins in the year 2015…there were zero deaths from multiple vitamins…no deaths whatsoever from vitamin A, niacin, pyridoxine (B-6) any other B-vitamin. There were no deaths from vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, or from any vitamin at all.
Not only are there no deaths from vitamins, there are also zero deaths from any other supplement …There were zero deaths from dietary mineral supplements. This means there were no fatalities from calcium, magnesium, chromium, zinc, colloidal silver, selenium, iron, or multi-mineral supplements.
…Additionally, there were zero deaths from amino acids or herbal products. This means no deaths at all from blue cohosh, echinacea, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, kava kava, St. John’s wort, valerian, yohimbe, Asian medicines, ayurvedic medicines, or any other botanical.
There were zero deaths from creatine, blue-green algae, glucosamine, chondroitin, or melatonin. There were zero deaths from any homeopathic remedy.
There actually was one fatality alleged from some “Unknown Dietary Supplement or Homeopathic Agent.” This is hearsay at best, and scaremongering at worst. How can an accusation be based on the unknown? Claiming causation without even knowing what substance or ingredient to accuse is baseless.
If nutritional supplements are allegedly so “dangerous,” as the FDA, the news media, and even some physicians still claim, then where are the bodies?”

According to Gallup Polls, well over 50% of the U.S. population takes nutritional supplements every day. That’s an estimated 170 million people gulping down supplements each day for their health and well-being. As Andrew Saul of Orthomolecular News states:
“If each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes some 170,000,000 individual dosesper day, for a total of well over 60 billion doses annually. Since many persons take far more than just one single tablet, actual consumption is considerably higher, and the safety of nutritional supplements is all the more remarkable.”
Remarkable indeed. A minimum of 60 billion doses of nutritional supplement annually, taken by some 170 million-plus people, and no deaths to report. No bodies to bury. No funerals to attend.
On the other hand, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (i.e., the Starfield Report, “Is U.S. Health Really the Best in the World?”), every year in the U.S. there are an astonishing 225,000 medically-caused deaths, including:
- 12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries;
- 7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals;
- 20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals;
- 80,000 deaths from infections acquired inhospitals;
- 106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines.
That’s a total of 225,000 medically caused deaths each and every year in the U.S., or 2.25 MILLION deaths every decade. In terms of deaths, that’s the equivalent of 75 9-11 attacks on our nation each and every year – all courtesy of Big Pharma and Big Medicine.
Indeed, prescription drugs are now the third leading cause of death in men, women and children, behind heart disease and cancer (ref: Dr. Peter Gotzsche, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, considered to be the world’s leading expert on clinical studies of pharmaceutical drugs).
So the next time you read one of those news articles with screaming headlines about how “unsafe” nutritional supplements like colloidal silver and others are, and how badly they need to be “regulated like drugs,” ask yourself if you really want the FDA involved in “regulating” something so safe, you quite literally cannot find any bodies to count.

Colloidal Silver for Pennies…
Colloidal silver can be purchased at just about any local health food store, or through a number of online sources including Amazon.com. However, it’s quite literally one of the most expensive and heavily marked-up natural supplements in existence.
Health food store owners, for example, often charge as much as $20-$30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. Yet the cost to manufacture four ounces of colloidal silver is about 12 cents. Yes, I said twelve cents.
Of course, people are willing to pay through the nose for colloidal silver, since it’s safe and natural, and works so well against infections and related diseases.
But thankfully, there’s no need to pay such exorbitant prices for colloidal silver, when you can make your own, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, for about 36 cents a quart.
Yes, you can make it yourself for its actual cost, and altogether skip the high mark-ups charged by health food stores!
If you’re interested in learning how to make your own high-quality colloidal silver at home, for about 36 cents a quart, here are some additional short articles you might want to take a look at:
